  • Powerful, moving episode.

    7.2
    This episode did not feature any big name NFL, MLB or NBA players, but it produced three moving stories about people devoted to football, to baseball and to football.



    Nick, the lone survivor of the deadly fishing trip from a few months ago gave a very emotional and powerful interview about his near 24 hours trapped in the Gulf of Mexico. The segment was entertaining as it was such a heartbreaking story when it happened and to see how shaken he still is over it is gripping television.



    The other segments were on par as well with two great stories about how two communities embraced two very different people.



    Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel gets a lot of heat from fans for not being a show that is neither entertaining, nor about big sports figures, but to me this was about as good as a sports magazine can get. I watched this replay at 5:25 in the morning and did not feel tired at all until it was over.moreless
